hi all, i just signed up here, i have been googling for a week or 2 looking for a new amp, i have considered building my own, but i thought i would ask here first as headfi has the most hits to most of my questions without really answering them.
i have a pair of dt770 250ohm headphones running into a creek obh-11 thats been modified, thats plugged into an maudio 2496 and has decent results.
what i really want is a new amp to give ear splitting volume, the creek starts to distort at full volume, it did this before i modded it, now its got more headroom, but i need more, so a new device is needed.
does anyone have a suggestion for an amp that can drive these headphones ?
the bass is lacklustre unless turned up, i realise they are not bass headphones, but id like more volume, im used to listening to stuff at stupid volumes, without distortion.
my 35 year old technics amp can drive them at ear splitting volumes, obviously i dont want to use it at that volume constantly, but i want the ability to crank stuff, im worried if i buy a new amp it will just be more of the same so some advice would be appreciated.
budget isnt a problem, but i dont really wanna spend a fortune, i fancy something like the little dot amps, but do they have good volume ?
